Overloud SuperCabinet Library: Bogie RK Open 4x12 C90
IR Library for SuperCabinet
Choptones Supercab IR Library created by capturing a Mesa Boogie 4x12 Road King with Mesa Boogie Black Shadow MC90 speakers.
Bogie RK Open 4x12 C90 is an extensive and systematic capture created with 12 microphones, 8 to 16 positions for each microphone, and multiple Mic preamps, for a total of over 300 IRs.
The cabinet has a slanted front, closed-back (left), open back (right), Marine Grade Baltic Birch plywood construction, and is a swiss army knife for guitar tone due to its hybrid closed/open back structure. The speaker, exclusively made by Celestion for Mesa, is great when paired with open back cabs because of its great headroom and tonal complexity
The captures were performed with a motorized mic stand in order to have consistent measurements across libraries.
The microphones used during the capturing session are:
- AKG C414
- Audio Technica 2035
- Audix i5
- Beyerdynamic M160
- Electrovoice RE20
- Neumann U87
- Royer 121
- Sennheiser MD21
- Sennheiser MD421
- Sennheiser MD441
- Shure SM7
- Shure SM57
Every microphone was moved to four different horizontal positions (Cap, Cap Edge, Cone, and Cone Edge) and two distances, for a total of eight IRs each.
For some microphones, the set of eight measurements was repeated with the microphone off-axis (45 deg).
All of the measurement sets were repeated twice with two different Mic preamps: a Neve 1073 and a German preamp.
Made for SuperCabinet
This library was created for the TH-U Supercabinet that allows you to:
- Graphically browse the IRs in the library
- Blend multiple IRs and create totally custom and huge stereo guitar tones
- Compose new cabinet tones with the unique Multiband mode
- Export your crafted IRs in .wav format for use with all major hardware modelers and software IR loaders
